After over a decade of abandonment, the LDC Hotels and Resort Group opens one of Florence's most beautiful Renaissance Palaces, Palazzo Portinari Salviati.

Becomes a Luxurious Residential Complex. That includes a Luxury Hotel with 13 suites, 25 Apartments, a Michelin-star restaurant, Bistrot & Bar, and a spa.

I had visited the palace before this Hotel inspection. Mario and I had an epic meal at the one-star Michelin restaurant Chic Nonna inside the palace.

The owner and executive chef at Chic Nonna is Vito Mollica. His flavors remain in my mind while visiting the location.

I met the Lovely Giulia di Giovanni, a Sales and Marketing Executive at the  Salotto Portinari Bar and Bistrot.

Giulia resembles a modern-day Beatrice Portinari. The Palace was the original home of Folco Portinari, father of Beatrice Portinari Dantes Muse—one of the most famous personalities to have lived here. Beatrice was the Literary muse and inspiration for Dante's Divine Comedy.

This magnificent example of Florentine Renaissance architecture is attributed to the palace's second owner Jacapo Salviati, husband of Lucrezia de Medici. Master architects such as Michelozzo and Giuliano da Sangallo amplified the palace.  The palace was also the residence of Cosimo I, Grand Duke of Tuscany.
